We all have a choice whether to go about our daily lives in a positive way or negative way. As well, we all have the power to decide whether to do good things in life or bad things. You can be your own worst enemy or a pillar of success and inspiration. It’s your life, you’re the boss, and you run the show. You have the power to make yourself successful. It just depends on how badly you want it. You can sit around, being lazy, unmotivated, and hope for some random miracle to happen to you, or you can go after your goals full force, and make things happen.
It’s important to love your life, and embrace every breath, every moment, and every opportunity that comes your way. Don’t take one day or one moment for granted. Live each day to the fullest, and in a positive manner. Be so inspirational that you inspire yourself. Motivate others so immensely that you even get motivated. Appreciate your life, your loved ones, and your success, without flaunting it. Stay humble, genuine, and kind to others. Stay grounded, and true to who you are, and who you want to be. Be righteous, and choose good over evil. Don’t settle for long term darkness, for merely short term light.
You can be a motivator or let others motivate you. It’s always a great thing to strive to be a motivator, as opposed to solely getting motivated by others. A good analogy would be sitting in a shadow, as opposed to standing in the sun. Be that person that inspires others. Either way, it’s important to stay focused, motivated, and work hard towards success, and achieving your goals. No one is going to achieve them for you, so you have to put in the hard work and determination to get to where you want to be in life.
As far as becoming an enlightened individual, you can’t shed light onto others when you’re not in an enlightened state of mind yourself. You can’t give advice, wisdom, or shed light when it’s not within you. If you can’t shed light onto others at this time in your life, that doesn’t mean that you’ll never be able to, because you will if you set your mind and heart to it. First you need to be mentally and emotionally in a place where you’re able to give of yourself. To give of yourself, you need to be a whole person. Just like I’m sure you’ve heard before, it’s imperative to take care of yourself and be in a healthy mind frame, before you take care of others.
